CHESTERFIELD, Mo.--(Mercy Health Ministry has recently signed on with Attainia, a capital equipment supply chain information technology company, to enable better visibility into Mercy’s capital equipment supply chain. According to Dave Miles, Director, Capital Planning & Asset Management, Mercy is always looking for the leading technology companies that help streamline processes, eliminate duplicative efforts, and allow better coordination amongst the design team.)--
“The Affordable Care Act will require all hospitals to efficiently and effectively manage expenditures while diligently continuing to serve their communities”
Dave began his discussions with Attainia in 2012, started implementation in early 2013, and is pleased with the advances to his program. "Before Attainia, we struggled getting our architect partners, general contractors and Mercy stakeholders all the documentation and communication needed to be successful in our equipment planning. Attainia allows us to address each group’s most important needs earlier in the design effort. From one central software package, Attainia links all the different facets in our hospital together, whether it's Supply Chain, Finance, Clinical Engineering, or Facilities. Using Attainia, we can now quickly and efficiently communicate with each group in real time on a variety of issues, which produces quicker and more definitive results for the team.”
“The Affordable Care Act will require all hospitals to efficiently and effectively manage expenditures while diligently continuing to serve their communities,” notes Jeff Kleck, Chairman, Attainia. “Mercy has a clear vision of what they want their program to accomplish, and we’re excited to be a part of it. Together we will achieve a best in class approach to improving the capital equipment supply chain.”
